And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, given the quality of food at Brooklyn restaurants like Brooklyn Fare and Blanca, where dinner for two after wine, tax and tip will easily exceed $650.
Things are only comparatively cheaper at Gwynnett St. in Williamsburg, the subject of my three star Bloomberg News review this week. The wine paired tasting menu is $115, a recent PRICE HIKE from $110. That all comes to $296 after tax and tip for two. Bread service is an extra $5, even on the tasting menu.
Advice to Gwynnett: Go ahead and hike your prices again, because you shouldn’t have to pay more for bread on the tasting menu. REALLY.
